Like Haman Before Him, Iranian Leader Accuses Jews of Sorcery

Arutz Sheva:
An Iranian leader with close ties to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei recently accused the Jews of engaging in sorcery and employing it against Iran, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported.

“The Jews are currently subjecting us to an unprecedented trial. As you read in the Koran, [King] Solomon ruled the world… and God ordered a group of sorcerers to come out against him. The Jews have the greatest powers of sorcery, and they make use of this tool,” said Mehdi Taeb, who heads Khamenei's Ammar Base think tank.

“All the measures that have been brought against us originate with the Zionists. The U.S. is a tool in their hands. So far, they have not used the full [scope of] their sorcery against us. Sorcery was the final means to which they resorted during the Ahmadinejad era, but they were defeated,” he said. “This ability of the Jews was eliminated by Iran. Five years ago they tried to oust Ahmadinejad [by this means].”

Furthermore, the Rasanews.ir website, which is associated with the religious seminaries in Qom, posted an article in March stating that Jews cherish the knowledge of sorcery, pass it down from generation to generation, and believe that it can be used to control mankind, nature and the decisions of G-d.

“The Jews have always tended to resort to divination, [a practice] that has its roots in astronomy, astrology and sorcery, [which they picked up] when they consorted with various peoples in the course of history…” the article states, according to MEMRI.

“The [Jewish] people think that ruling over man, nature, and divine traditions can be achieved only by means of sorcery. They believe that it is possible to conquer nature and control the world, and even to control God’s decisions, by using sorcery methods,” it adds.
Of course, this accusation is nothing new for Persians. The Midrash tells us how Haman accused the Jews of performing all the miracles that occurred to them via sorcery in his diatribe to King Ahashverosh.

Esther Rabba 7:13:

כיון ששמע פרעה שהיו בורחים הלך אחריהם להשיב את ממונו מה עשו לו היה עמהם אדם אחד ושמו משה בן עמרם ובכשפיו נטל מקל אחד ולחש עליו והכה בו את הים עד שנחרב ונכנסו כולם ביבשה בתוך הים ועברו כולם ואינו יודע במה עברו ובמה יבשו המים

...

היה לו תלמיד אחד יהושע בן נון שמו והיה אכזרי עד מאד ולא היה לו רחמים אמר לו אותו משה (שם) בחר לנו אנשים וצא הלחם בעמלק איני יודע אותן אנשים שבחר אם בעלי כשפים הם או אם גבורי מלחמה מה עשה אותו משה נטל מקל בידו ואיני יודע מה עשה בו וכיון שבא עליהם איני יודע מה לחש עליהם ורפו ידיהם ונפלו לפניהם הה"ד (שם) ויחלוש יהושע את עמלק ואת עמו לפי חרב באו על סיחון ועוג גבורי ארצנו שאין כל בריה היתה יכולה לעמוד בפניהם ואיני יודע במה הרגום באו עליהם מלכי מדין ואיני יודע במה הרגן

...

ועמד אחריו שלמה בנו ובנה להן לישראל בית אחד וקרא לו ביהמ"ק ואיני יודע מה היה להם בתוכו כשבאין למלחמה נכנסין בתוכו ומכשפים בתוכו וכשהן יוצאים ממנו הורגים ומחריבים את העולם

Love the way our enemies love to pin the most absurd lies on us - everything that is definitely pointed out as 'grave sins' in the Torah. Such as - blood in the Pesach matzos, sorcery, etc. Who else but the Jews soak & salt the meat just to rid it of all the blood, a big food NO-NO. Also, is there a greater sin than sorcery, as we know even from the story of Shaul Hamelech hiring the witch to bring up Shmuel HaNavi from the dead. He lost his kingdom for that sin and for not killing the evil Og. It's easy when you deliver lies over and over to a very ignorant public, especially if it's about the Jews. After a while, they gladly accept anything as truth.

Neshama, it's a different blogger with a similar blog name. Another Devorah sorts it out here.

May as well take advantage of their complete stupidity and threaten them with mass destruction if they don't stop terrorizing Israel. We could say something like, we'll cast meteors on your lands, summon demons to eat your children, turn all your oil into pink fluffy bear stuffing and transform your leaders into frogs.

That should scare 'em good.

Thanks YY.
However, there seems to be three 3 sites by the same/similar name. Shiratdevorah dot org, shirt-devorah dot com, and ours on blogspot. Plus a company by that name!

Shabbat Shalom
